It was in July of 1946 that the bikini was introduced. In August, the NBA was formed. Ayn Rand began writing Atlas Shrugged in September. In October, Nazi leaders were sentenced at Nuremberg, and, of course, WWII hostilities were officially declared ended by President Truman that December. Quite a year.
But the very best thing that happened in 1946 was the birth of a certain destined-to-become Chicken Emperor baby boy in St. Paul, Minnesota on November 10.
Happy birthday, Dear!
